What You Need to Know About Wetpour Repair
Unlike some Wetpour Repair equipment that can be incredibly expensive to repair if it goes wrong, the good thing about wet pour is that it can often be fixed very easily without having to completely rip up the surface and start again. This is because the surfacing itself is basically recycled melted rubber and so is very easy to work with when it comes to repairs.
Wet pour repair can be carried out very quickly, especially if the damage has happened as a result of vandalism or simply through heavy use. A simple cut back and filling in of the damaged area will normally be enough to fix this type of problem and the professional installers onsite will also resurface any areas that are raised and creating trip hazards.
Maximizing Wetpour Repair Investments: Dos and Don’ts
One of the most important things to bear in mind is that a wet pour surface will require some maintenance throughout its lifespan. This should include regular cleaning and inspections to help ensure that the floor stays in good condition. This will allow problems to be spotted as they arise rather than waiting for them to become worse and therefore more costly to repair.
Wet pour surfaces will also need to be capped every two years to extend their life and keep them looking nice and new. This is usually done through a process known as a recap which involves adding a new 15 mm layer on top of the existing surfacing. This is a bit like icing a cake and can really transform the look of the whole playground surface.
